Don’t just remind your little ones to wash their hands to maintain good hygiene; pick the right skin cleanser and moisturiser for them too.
The flu, diarrhoea, hand, foot and mouth disease… and now, the novel coronavirus. All of these nasty bugs are scary, but there are some things you can do to help your kids reduce the risks of falling sick: Maintain good personal hygiene.
Having said that, are your kids washing their hands properly? To get rid of germs properly, be sure to wash thoroughly for at least 20 seconds – or simply have them hum or sing “Happy Birthday” twice.
And with our Singapore weather getting warmer and more humid, you may want to give them an extra shower to keep your kids cool and clean.
But frequent washing and bathing can take a toll on the skin, especially when using harsh soaps. So, what can you do if all that washing is worsening your kids’ dry, sensitive or eczema-prone skin?
With so many daily challenges to tackle, you will have one less thing to worry about when you choose the right cleanser.
Always remember to moisturise afterwards, too, as this is also an important step in managing your kid’s dry and itchy skin.
Keep skin healthy with the right cleanser and moisturiser
A dermatological skincare brand from France, Bioderma’s Atoderm range of face and body cleansers and moisturisers are formulated with ultra-gentle and hydrating ingredients.
Check out the Atoderm Anti-irritation Cleansing Oil (Huile de douche), which works together with the Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Moisturiser (PP Baume) as a two-step skincare regimen to provide immediate relief for dry, sensitive and eczema-prone skin.
The Atoderm Anti-irritation Cleansing Oil doesn’t just keep your kids clean, it also provides all-day hydration for your kid’s skin from the time it is used.
That’s because this super-gentle cleanser contains a unique formulation comprising lipid-replenishing agents, ultra-gentle and soap-free cleansing agents.
With a pH level of 5 to 5.5, similar to the natural pH level of our skin surface, the cleanser also boasts a signature patent called Skin Barrier Therapy. It contains Sucroesters, an active ingredient which helps limit a type of bacteria called S.aureus from sticking onto the skin and irritating it.
You and your kids will love the non-oily, gel-like texture that turns into a gentle foam upon contact with water and rinses off easily for a refreshing feel – a bonus, especially with the weather getting warmer and more humid.
More importantly, the cleanser helps keep skin healthy by locking in moisture, relieving skin tightness and reducing itch.
For best effect, apply the Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Moisturiser after showering and handwashing. It contains ingredients such as zanthalene, glycerin, and Vitamin PP. The latter, also known as niacinamide, helps stimulate production of ceramides.
All these ingredients work together to calm and relieve your kid’s itchy and dry skin, right from the first application.
With frequent washing and good hygiene practices here to stay, you can have peace of mind knowing that the Atoderm Anti-irritation Cleansing Oil and Ultra-Nourishing Moisturiser are free of harsh ingredients, such as parabens, alcohol, fragrance, colorants and other preservatives. The cleanser also doesn’t contain sulfates, which can dry out skin.
Both of these ultra-gentle, dermatologically-tested products are suitable even for babies. And adults will love them, too.
